Steve :

You'll need to look a little more closely at how the power is distributed 
within the box.  If the two rows of breakers are each fed from a single bus 
bar, but each bus bar is fed from a separate input wire, then your RS capacitor 
needs to connect between the two halves of the box.  (It doesn't matter whether 
you attach directly to a input wire, bus bar, or breaker output.  The cap is 
it's own fuse <g>)

However, if there are two bus bars under each row of breakers, each fed from a 
separate input, you can just wire the cap between them.

All best done with the power off, of course <g>
